Recombinant Rat Prolactin (PRL)
Rat Prolactin (PRL) is a peptide hormone that is secreted most notably from the pituitary gland where it acts in an endocrine fashion, but also from extra pituitary regions where it acts in an autocrine or paracrine fashion. It is listed as having over 300 separate functions and is involved in more processes than any other pituitary hormone. PRL is most commonly known for its lactation stimulating effect, but also plays a role in reproductive behavior, homeostasis of electrolytes, growth and development, regulation of metabolism, immune system regulation, angiogenesis, and survival of cancer cells. PRL acts as a ligand for the prolactin receptor, PRLR.
